How Invisalign® Straightens Your Teeth
Much like traditional braces, Invisalign® gradually pushes your teeth into the desired location. Your clear aligners will slowly move your teeth through your mouth, and once your aligner no longer fits, you’ll return to our office for a new set. Total treatment time differs among patients, but most people see results after a year to 18 months of alignment.
Explore the Benefits of Invisalign®
Invisalign® comes with many benefits that encourage patients to choose them over braces. First, these clear aligners are completely removable, making eating, brushing, and flossing much easier. If you want to take off Invisalign® for photos, you can do that as well. However, perhaps the biggest benefit is the virtually-invisible nature of clear aligners. Few people will notice you’re even wearing them!
What’s the Process for Getting Invisalign®?
Getting fitted for Invisalign® involves several steps. First, we’ll need to determine if your dental problem can be corrected with clear aligners. If so, we’ll move on to taking photos and x-rays of your teeth and send those images off to help with the construction of your custom clear aligners. In just a few weeks, your Invisalign® trays will be delivered to our office. You’ll come in for a fitting, and soon enough, you’ll be able to start straightening your teeth. If you have more questions about the process, be sure to read our Invisalign® FAQ.
Caring for Your Clear Aligners
According to dental professionals and Invisalign® reviews alike, caring for clear aligners is much easier than maintaining braces. To keep your aligners in top shape, rinse them whenever you remove them from your mouth and be sure to soak them regularly. Whenever you brush or floss your teeth, remove your Invisalign® aligners and set them aside. Always use antibacterial soap to keep your Invisalign® aligners free of plaque. It’s also a good idea to stay away from staining foods and drinks while wearing your aligners. Be sure to remove them and brush them without toothpaste, as toothpaste can harm the structure of your clear aligners.
Is Invisalign® Better than Braces?
If you’re deciding between Invisalign® and braces, it’s essential to account for your goals. The better option for you will depend on what you want to achieve for your smile by the end of treatment. Certain conditions, such as gapped teeth, crowded teeth, and overbites can be corrected with Invisalign®, but more severe or extensive conditions will require traditional metal braces. While metal braces are better for treating severe alignment issues, Invisalign® is the best option for those who are concerned about the look of metal on their teeth. The team at Maple Avenue Family Dentistry will evaluate your condition and help you decide which is best for you.
How Much Does Invisalign® Cost?
Many patients call us asking about the Invisalign® cost. In most cases, Invisalign® ends up being more expensive than traditional braces. Your total cost will vary depending on several factors, but you can plan to pay anywhere from $3,000 to $7,000. However, some insurance companies may offer coverage for this type of treatment. Always consult with your insurance provider before committing to a certain dental or medical procedure.
